Come Across Stitch - The Papered Parlour

Event preview

THE PAPERED Parlour is presenting Come Across Stitch, a one day event that brings together three key works by public artist Hannah Hull – on Saturday, September 19, 2009.

From oversized bunting to gynormous doilies, The Papered Parlour takes you on a craft hunt of extreme proportions as part of the London Design Festival 2009.

Renowned for her mischievous interventions in the built environment, Hull will transform the back streets of Clapham into a playground of public art.

Working with a DIY aesthetic, and drawing on domestic craft traditions, Hull places handmade items in unexpected urban contexts.

Utilising a mix of highly visible and concealed interventions that add colour and texture to the urban environment, Hull’s series of ‘improvements’ takes a humorous look at the ways in which public art can unite strangers and bring communities together.

From giant bunting stretched the length of a row of terrace housing to a huge doily big enough to cover a builder’s skip, expect craftivism on a massive scale!

This one day event includes:

11am: Come Across Stitch – three key public art interventions by Hannah Hull.

12pm: Artist Talk – Public artist Hannah Hull in conversation.

1 pm: Designer-Maker Market – Shop at The Papered Parlour’s bustling indoor designer-maker market.

2 pm: Workshop – Join Hannah Hull to help create a mass intervention in the backstreets of Clapham.

All Day: Design Trail – Follow The Papered Parlour’s map and uncover a world of design in South London you never knew existed.

Dusk: Closing Party – Join Hannah Hull for drinks at dusk as the giant luminous bunting takes on a life of it’s own.
